Collaboration dog food

Posted in Atlassian by Jon on December 18th, 2007

I’ve yet to hear anyone, me included, say “my ____ [insert organization type here: company, non-profit, or team] communicates perfectly.” At every company I’ve worked for and with everyone I’ve spoken to, communication always seems broken. Your boss doesn’t communicate with you, the management team doesn’t communicate, or the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing. While the company I work for can improve upon communication, I think we do it better than most.

I wrote a looooong blog post today about how we do collaboration. Since we sell software for doing distributed software development and collaboration, it seemed fit to put the spotlight on ourselves.

In theory, one would hope if we’re going to sell this stuff that we actually use it, too! :) For marketing, I’ve found the wiki to be invaluable in making it possible to communicate within the company and with contractors. A while ago, I wrote a post about using wikis for marketing, too. Here’s a link to the blog today on collaboration.
